So I guess the first question is “What is a Sofge?” Â Well for those of you that don’t know, the male version of the Sofge is a lot like the Crossfit Garage Buddha except without the famous Buddha belly. Â But he is bald like Buddha so that should be close enough.
Now 2 springs ago Bruce held a “Body Fat Challenge,” where anyone in the gym interested could put up $10, have their initial body fat measured, and the remeasured again at the conclusion of the Body Fat Challenge. Â Bruce set up the competition and asked each participant what their goals were and what their plan was to achieve their goals. Â Something very educational and interesting occurred. Â Everyone who had a specific “plan to achieve their goals,” made excellent progress and lost a lot of body fat. Â Nobody without a specific plan lost anything!!! Â That’s right not only did they not achieve their goal, if memory serves me they didn’t lose any bodyfat at all. Â Geordan even managed to gain a little. Â 🙂
So the lesson here, Â is a goal without a plan to achieve the goal is probably a goal that isn’t going to be achieved. Â So this year as we all state our goals and resolutions for the New Year, let’s put together a plan to help us get there. Â So below post what specific measures you are going to take to achieve your goals. Â If your goal is to train at least 4 times a week, then there really isn’t any need to have a specific plan since all you have to do is show up 4X a week, but if your goal is to drop 5% body fat, or improve your deadlift by 50lbs, then you better have a specific plan to get there. Â So post your plan below, or if you need help tell us your goals and we can help you develop your plan. Â Make 2012 the year you achieve all of your goals!!
